For the third time this fall, former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger’s debut CD is being pushed back again, this time to 2008, confirms Interscope. Her Name is Nicole, originally slated for an Oct. 6 release, was first rescheduled for Nov. 6. Then, facing stiff chart competition from Jay-Z and Chris Brown, it was moved to Nov. 20. Scherzinger’s post-Pussycat effort, which has been in the works for more than two years and features collaborations with will.i.am, Sting, Snowpatrol’s Gary Lightbody, T.I., and Akon, was meant to launch Scherzinger as a solo artist on the same playing field as Interscope label-mates Gwen Stefani and Fergie. But after a lackluster response to the dance track “Whatever U Like,” and with her second single, “Baby Love,” nowhere near the Hot 100, insiders say Scherzinger’s team is “rethinking” the roll-out while leaving an option open for more studio time.
